Shropshire’s safe haven for Jewish children

Posted on September 4, 2019

One school which came to Shropshire early in the war provided a safe haven for Jewish children who had escaped Nazi persecution. A blue plaque on Trench Hall at Tilley Green, near Wem, tells of its noble wartime role. It says: “This progressive Jewish boarding school was founded by Anna Essinger M.A. in Ulm, Germany, in 1926, and was brought to Kent, England, in 1933 and evacuated here to Trench Hall over the war years, 1940-1946.”
